Adaptive Control Option:
Adaptive Control

Adaptive Control allows the Tool Monitoring and Control System to regulate your machine’s feedrate override, maintaining a constant spindle motor horsepower during cutting. This feature optimizes cycle times, and includes Adaptive Extreme Limit checking.

Advantages of Adaptive Control:
Reduced Cycle Time

bulletAdaptive Control reduces cycle time by optimizing feedrates, reducing feedrates in hard spots, and increasing them in soft areas or voids.

Increased Tool Life

bulletTool life is extended when a tool continually cuts at its optimum horsepower. This ensures that your tools are never worn prematurely from excessive feedrates or unpredictable hard spots.

Part Program Optimization

bulletThe Tool Monitoring and Control System can be used to determine the best feedrates for tools that will run in a non-adaptive mode. With a target horsepower set for each tool, WinChart 2000™ can be used to view the controlled feedrates during the cut. These feedrates can then be edited in the part program.
